Seeking a Senior Network Officer. This role would suit someone with a background in membership, events and project management with an enthusiasm for engagement.
New Local is a think tank and network of councils and other organisations working to energise local government and improve public services. At the heart of our work is ‘community power’ - the belief that people should be given the means to transform the places where they live and the services they use. We believe this is key to sustainable, fairer public services and a better society for all.
We publish research on community power. We campaign for change. And we work directly with public and voluntary sector bodies to help them hand more power and resource over to communities.
In recent months, New Local’s direct work with councils and other bodies to turn the principle of community power into reality has grown considerably. We have also grown our membership and expanded the range of sessions we offer to members.
The role will require someone with the ability to support the complex logistical and administration tasks associated with our programmes to ensure they are run efficiently and to the very highest standards.
Your job will include:
- Event planning: Excite and engage our network by meticulously designing and delivering the format, content and logistics of our events and online sessions to be of maximum impact and value to them.

- Production and delivery: Be the on-the-day ‘producer’ for events and online sessions delivering a seamless experience ensuring our members have a smooth, enjoyable and interesting experience from start to finish.
- Working with stakeholders: Proactively and positively work with event stakeholders, including partners, sponsors, and other team members, before, during and after events/sessions to create a vibrant network of collaboration.
- Developing ideas: Along with the rest of the team you’ll help identify new opportunities to increase participation, draw in new councils and expand our work.
- And more... As part of a small, friendly and informal organisation you'll participate in other activities including attending external events, writing blog posts, supporting the delivery of New Local’s vision and ensuring that the organisation’s profile and reputation are maintained and enhanced.
Our ideal candidate will be:

- A natural collaborator, with knowledge of the benefits of peer-learning and network building.
- A developer and deliverer, who has experience of seeing through ideas from conception to completion.
- A systematic thinker, who understands the importance of an organised approach and excellent record-keeping.
- Enthusiastic for the potential of community power with a demonstrable interest in inclusion, participatory engagement and/or local government.
- Driven by achieving change, both in terms of improving our own work and achieving New Local’s broader political and societal goals.
- Above all... we’re looking for someone with an excellent work ethic, full of curiosity and diligence. Someone who will be optimistic, supportive and fun to work with, and never be afraid to pitch in with the rest of the team.
Location: New Local operates a highly flexible approach to work location and welcomes applications from across the UK.
New Local was founded in 1996. There is currently a team of 17 staff working on practice, research, communications, influencing and peer-learning with our network of over sixty councils and other partner organisations.

If you have experience of delivering a successful peer support service or volunteer programme this is a genuinely exciting opportunity to develop a new service for an established patient support charity. Based remotely, but able to travel frequently in and around to London, we are seeking a creative, organised and committed programme manager.
Kidney Care will be working with the London Kidney Network and peer support champions from London NHS Trusts to establish a London-wide kidney peer support service. The ambition is to develop the service to cover the UK.
This is all about connecting people who are living with kidney failure, and applications from people with personal experience of the condition as a patient or carer are encouraged.
This is a new service for Kidney Care UK and the programme manager will be instrumental in scoping and implementing processes and procedures to deliver a compassionate, safe and valued service. The role will also ensure that all volunteers giving their time to Kidney Care UK have a fulfilling experience and will support colleagues across the organisation to confidently engage and support their own volunteers.
Kidney Care UK is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and Adults at Risk and expect all staff and volunteers to actively support this commitment. An DBS check will be required for this role.
About Kidney Care UK
Around 3.5 million people in the UK live with chronic kidney disease (CKD). 68,000 are treated for end-stage kidney failure, relying on dialysis or a transplant to keep them alive. Treatments are gruelling and relentless and impact the patients’ ability to work, maintain social interaction and live the life they choose.
For over 45 years, Kidney Care UK has been at the forefront of supporting people with kidney disease. From our early days when we campaigned to introduce donor cards in the UK, we have worked hard to support and represent the interests of everyone affected by kidney disease.
Promoting better outcomes for people living with kidney disease we actively seek applications from people who live with CKD or who have experience as a family member or health professional.
About the Peer Support Service
The Peer Support Service connects people affected by CKD with a volunteer who shares a similar lived experience. Alongside partners in the London Kidney Network, we will recruit, train and support volunteers to provide a friendly listening ear and share practical information to build confidence in decision making, explore options and make informed choices about a range of issues from treatment to travel. Patients, their families and caregivers will access the service to request a conversation with someone matched on a range of factors which could include treatment modality, location, age and life experience.
This is a new service that the Peer Support manager will establish and shape, working effectively with stakeholders to build a trusted service that patients and healthcare professionals want to engage with. This is very much a hands-on role covering all aspects of delivering the service; creating resources and processes; recruiting, training and stewarding volunteers; promotion, and building relationships with NHS renal units to attract service users; and of course, matching individuals to encourage patients to feel empowered to make choices and manage their condition with confidence.
Please send your CV and a covering letter demonstrating how you would be perfect for this role.
Applications invited from Monday 27 November to Monday 18 December by 10am.
First interviews by Teams, Thursday 21 and Friday 22 December. A second interview will be held in person at our offices in Alton, Hampshire w/c 11 January 2024.
